2015 MLB Draft Open Thread

It's time once again for the slog that is the 40 round (plus compensatory picks) MLB draft. LSU will yet again have at least 1 name called in the first round as Alex Bregman is slotted to go anywhere in the first 7 picks, with some saying he might be first overall.

It's also a time to watch next year's recruiting class get whittled away by the people who can actually pay these players money. The Advocate put together a great list of who is a draft risk along with the entire 2015 recruiting class and interviews with some of the players. I have cribbed the list below and added SB Nation's own Top 400 prospect rankings.

The first few rounds air live tonight on MLB network at 6pm and on their website.

UPDATE: I have updated the chart to show where guys were drafted and how much of a signing bonus MLB has assigned to that draft pick (Be aware that the actual bonus players sign for can vary wildly from the assigned value due to multiple factors, including the rest of a club's draft class)

Player Position Draft Position (Round) -Team Signing Bonus Slot Value
Kade Scivicque C 130 (4th) - Tigers $426,800.00
Jared Foster 2B 165 (5th) - Angles $304,700.00
Zac Person LHP 259 (9th) - Astros $164,200.00
Conner Hale 3B 275 (9th) - Mariners $158,300.00
Alex Bregman SS 2 (1st) - Astros $7,420,100.00
Andrew Stevenson OF 58 (2nd) - Nationals $1,058,100.00
Chris Chinea 1B 521 (17th) - Cardinals NA
Mark Laird OF 264 (9th) - Phillies $162,400.00
